Good Word


Quick word on Logan - the doctor was pleased this afternoon with the effect these 2 drugs are having on Logan - almost no swelling under his eye, very little puffiness above, no proptosis to speak of. He's gradually improving so we're staying the course at least for another month, with weekly office follow-up. Some bloodwork has been ordered to monitor his liver and kidney functions while taking this strong medicine. The only side effect Logan seems to be having is some photosensitivity that comes with the Vfend. It is powerful stuff and this South Texas sun is shining pretty hot on my little guy's face. His cheeks, nose and now chin are pretty red and there are a few little blisters here and there. I'm using sunblock on him, making him wear a hat outside and the doc prescribed some ointment today to help. I'm glad Logan's not a video game junkie, but it might be better for him and me right now if he were...smiles...not really.

I was so glad to hear the good news. Yay! Sorry that Logie is having sensitivity to the sun. He should come stay with me for a while. Lots of snow...barely any sun. Would work out great for him. =) I am proud of you for how you are taking such great care of my favorite nephew named Logan. You are an incredible mother, Melodie! When you go through a rough time like this it makes the word "Mother" seem totally different, doesn't it? "Mother" can mean lots of different things. =) You are doing a great job. Love you so much...
